NYC/Queens: Tripping the Light (wine) Fantastic - Late Jun (24/25/30) - Summer Wine & Cheese

So, as promised (threatened?)…another wine & cheese night. It’s summer, we’ll probably be outside at the location, and since the weather will be hot-ish…I want people to bring their best

“Light - or light on its feet” wine that goes with cheese.

Things like BUBBLES of any kind (not just champagne), white or tawny port, light sherry, banyuls, rainwater madeira, spatlese/auslese rieslings!, idiosyncratic lighter expressions of sweet wines, or things that make you sigh and say “ahhhhh” on a summer eve that would go with a cheese.

We’ll find the cheese that pairs; there are also pâtés and charcuterie that we can buy…

Location: Bier and Cheese Collective in Astoria, queens.

Evening will run from 630-930pm…

Food cost: Less than $50 per head including tax+tip!
Corkage: $15/bottle. Unlimited bottles (within reason!, let’s say 4 if you want to go bonkers). Bring your own stems (they have glasses if we run out, but it’s a beer focused place).
Here is the restaurant location at 35-11 Ditmars Blvd, Queens, NY 11105 right by the NW subway or a short taxi from midtown.

Here is a poll for the dates: Mon 24, Tues 25 or Sun 30 Jun

I will leave this open till 9pm of Sunday 26 May or if we get 8 responders that agree on one night before then.
If the weather looks good we can go beyond 8 as the outdoors has more room.

Please only use the doodle poll for scheduling; don’t start a discussion on this thread or an email chain, don’t reply to this post with dates you can/can’t come.

On that doodle link: You can change your selections up until the poll is closed without notifying everyone; everyone can see who can come when. It really is the way to schedule stuff!

Looking forward to some new wine/cheese harmonies…
